Caution needs to be used in opening up the floodgates to refugees

This is an open letter to our governments on all levels. I am writing in response to Trudeau’s policy on refugees and the war against ISIS. He is not even in power yet and he is already showing his soft side to the war on ISIS. First he has already declared that he will pull our fighter jets out of the war, and now he has now stated that he will open the floodgates and allow 25,000 refugees from the middle east, into our country by 1 January 2016, without any mention of doing any documentation or security clearances or “weeding out process”.

One only has to look at what is happening in European countries who have done the same thing and are being overwhelmed. They are now facing all the problems associated with radicalism, terrorism, crime, and all the social problems associated with the massive flood of so called refugees in their countries.

Trudeau better listen very carefully to his security advisors and set up some sort of vetting process and decide who he is going to let in to our country. But at this time, he has not made any statement about how he is going to protect Canada and Canadians from terrorist infiltrations.

He has stated that he will be working with governments at all levels regarding the placement of said refugees. I am asking our local government members, municipal, provincial and our MPs to stand firm and ensure that we do not get handed a bag of problems that have been let into our country in a wholesale flood of problem people disguised as refugees.

I will state, however, that I do not have a problem with letting actual, deserving refugees enter our country, as long as they, like thousands of refugees from different countries, before them, want to assimilate into our country without bringing their “baggage,” and leave their laws in their home country. We have our standards and laws here. If they don’t like them or they don’t want to live by them perhaps a return trip to where they came from would be in order.

As Red Deerians, Albertans, and as Canadians, we need to stand firm and voice our concerns before these matters get out of hand.
